Jenő Blau was born in Budapest, Hungary. We know him by the name he adopted early in his career when he moved to the United States.

The first name he took is the English version of his given name, Jenő. Legend has it that he invented his American last name by looking at the boat from which he was disembarking and removing the N.

He left 501 boxes of marked scores, arrangements and more for the University of Pennsylvania Library. Here is the website the library set up to let you in on the life of Eugene Ormandy.
